Different types of braces in Liverpool

There are many different types of braces in Liverpool these days that enable patients to feel more confident about their decision when they embark on their personal journey towards having a healthier and more attractive smile.


Straighter teeth have many benefits, some of them cosmetic whilst others are more about the overall health and wellbeing of the individual. You need to recognise that teeth are designed to be in correct alignment to one another and even if your mouth naturally isn’t designed that way, for your teeth to stay strong and healthy and to allow your mouth to function properly, your jaw and teeth need to be realigned correctly.

Some people cannot bite and chew correctly if their bite isn’t correctly aligned. Other people may find that their teeth will wear down very quickly and that this will cause serious issues later in life because they are meeting at the wrong angle when they bite down.

We find that a lot of our patients suffer with headaches, neck pain, jaw pain and can also find that their teeth are more susceptible to damage when not aligned correctly. On a cosmetic level, teeth that are not aligned correctly can harbour more bad bacteria than other teeth.

There can also be areas of concern when there is a buildup of plaque and tartar over time, which in turn can lead to cavities. If not dealt with swiftly, people may find that their teeth have lost significant strength and they need to deal with the devastating impacts of poor oral health on their general wellbeing.

There is simply an overwhelming number of reasons why it is important to straighten your teeth. We can help you to do this with one of the different types of braces in Liverpool that we have available.

By speaking with your dentist about what kinds of braces in Liverpool are suitable for you, you are able to decide what you would like best to wear on your journey towards better health and a more beautiful smile.

What are some of the choices and how can I make this decision?

There are a few basic options that you can decide upon that can lead you in the right direction to finding that perfect device. You will need to ask your dentist whether your personal condition is suitable to be able to use a removable device or whether a fixed one is more appropriate. You then need to ask yourself whether you are keen to wear a clear or invisible device or whether a less expensive traditional option would suffice.

Removable, clear devices such as Invisalign are worn by millions of people worldwide however they are best suited to those with mild to moderate conditions and who are very self motivated to continue wearing their device during the course of treatment.

Fixed devices come in many different colours and can be completely invisible whilst being attached to the back of your teeth, using clear or tooth coloured brackets and wires and may even have an extremely short treatment time.

By discussing your options with a dentist, we are confident we can find the right style for your needs.
